Arsenal pursues Stuttgart defender Waldemar Anton amidst defensive woes

Arsenal is targeting Stuttgart’s defensive veteran, Waldemar Anton, in order to build up their defensive ranks and overcome the injury issues that have plagued their backline.

The Gunners are in a pickle after Japanese defender Takehiro Tomiyasu suffered an injury during their recent win against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Mikel Arteta is keen to strengthen his squad’s defensive qualities despite having only three fit senior full-backs – Ben White, Oleksandr Zinchenko, and Cedric Soares.

The injury to Tomiyasu has brought out the critical need for extra defensive options, pushing Arsenal to focus on the versatile German defender.

Aston Villa and West Ham are said to be interested in signing Anton, raising the rivalry for the talented defender. Anton, who is under contract with Stuttgart until 2025, has been vital in his team’s Bundesliga campaign, helping them to third place in the league standings.

Anton’s abilities intrigues potential suitors given his versatility to play both at center-back and right-back. Arsenal, who leads the Premier League table by two points over Liverpool, understands the importance of a strong defensive unit in order to maintain their title push.

As contract negotiations between Anton and Stuttgart continue, Arsenal fans rapidly await a resolution, wanting to see the German defender don the famous red and white jersey at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners are aware that defensive additions might be the key to securing silverware and completing their title ambitions as they navigate the difficulties of a demanding season.
